Through a journalistic report published by Fox Business (via Game Developer) we come to know that Bobby Kotick could remain CEO of Activision Blizzard in the event that the acquisition carried out by Microsoft fails.
Bobby Kotick, who has headed the company since 1991, should step aside if Activision Blizzard were to be incorporated into the Redmond giant, however this is not certain to happen since various government bodies are getting in the way. Among these we mention the UK CMAthe Federal Trade Commission statunitense e the antitrust of the European Union.
The figure of Bobby Kotick has become increasingly uncomfortable for the image of Activision Blizzard, so much so that the CEO himself he would have considered resigning in the midst of the controversy that had invested the company about two years ago, when the publisher was accused of doing very little to combat harassment in the workplace. In that regard, the same Kotick was charged with connivance since he would have known about the matter well before it became public knowledge, so much so that in some cases he would have moved to cover up the alleged scandals.
